I was kind of excited about this skin. I mean, you can never have too many good knight skins, right? Well, the skin didn't quite meet up to my expectations. First of all, the author didn't change the face. I've never seen a knight from the medieval times with facial hair quite like that. The links on the chain mail are a little big, and none of the seems between body parts match up. The red on the crosses is way too bright, and it doesn't have any kind of texture to it, so it almost looks like he's wearing nylon or lycra. The gloves and boots are just a flat gray color, and there's a little piece of chainmail on the tip of his boot, because the author obviously wasn't very careful of what he was doing. The cross isn't even centered on the torso.
The only difference between the team skins is that the sleeves are blue/red, and the cross is blue on the blue version. Honestly this skin would've been a little better if the author had been a little more careful, and had put a little more effort into it.This just doesn't seem to have that 'templar knight' feel, to me. Chain mail and a cross doesn't make you a medieval knight.

******************************* Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy ******************************* TITLE: Templar Knight AUTHOR: ViperGTS450 (borrowed some layout parts from Mithrandir's Medieval Knight Skin) EMAIL: LilVInny2200@yahoo.com AIM: LilVinny0220 WEBSITE: none. File Name: TemplarKnight.pk3 File Size: 827 kb Date Released: September 15, 2005 CREDITS: I would like give credit to a user known as "Mithrandir" for creating a Medieval Knight skin that I used at a base to edit. I borrowed some sounds/voice actings from a movie called "Kingdom of Heaven" I myself (ViperGTS450) had just recreated the style, and used different chain mail, but kept the same basis in Mithrandir's skin, whom which Ive tried to get in contact with but never did. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Needed: Winzip or maybe WinRAR. Once you have downloaded the skin from the website, use winzip to open the files, and extract them to C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base . Then, once you have extracted the files into the JKA base folder, open up the game and the skin should show up on your menu screen. DESCRIPTION: The Knights Templar was a monastic military order formed after the first crusade to try and recover the Holy Lands of Palistine from the Saracens. The Objective of the order was to protect christian pilgrims on thier way to the holy lands, but eventually they became much more than that. They became very wealthy, and in time the most wealthiest in all of Christiandom. But eventually, after they christian europeans lost control of the holy lands, the objective of the Knights Templar was no more. And some looked upon them with greed. On October 13th, 1307 the pope and the king of France had the templars arrested for hersay and burned at the stake that morning... I was inspired to make this skin after seeing the movie Kingdom of Heaven and would like to have made the best possible resemblence of this great legendary order. This is my first official skin that I have sent in, I hope to make many more and of many different things. BUGS: The only bugs I have noticed in this skin file is that on pure servers they WILL NOT show up. But on non pure servers they should be no problem (and most servers arent pure).
